Junior guard Amber Battle scored a career-high 23 points and freshmen Jasmine Caston had a career-high 15 to go with Minta Spears' 10.

A Day To Remember
It was truly a Thanksgiving for the Lady Raiders to always remember. The team got in their final tune-up before playing its first game against Michigan at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The team then boarded the bus and headed to the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. It was an incredible sight to see where the twin towers stood up until 12 years ago. Most of the team was 9 years old or younger on Sept. 11, 2001. It marked a return trip to the Big Apple for the program and head coach Candi Whitaker, who was a player at Tech when the Lady Raiders played in New York just 100 days after 9/11.

Fun in Times Square
Well it has been a fun first night in the Big Apple. The team got a chance to see the city for the first time and walk around Times Square before eating dinner at Dave and Buster's and then enjoying "The Lion King" on Broadway. The show was unbelievable with all the amazing set designs and costumes and, oh yes - the music and acting was second to none. Now it's off to bed and back at it in the morning for the team's first practice at the Barclays Center - the final preparation before taking on Michigan at 9:30 a.m. CT Friday.
